  • Tips and tricks
Vacuum sealing things line sheets and linen is a great space saver.

If you want to make the most out of your move, you'll better utilize the precious space that's available. One of the easiest ways to do just that is to vacuum seal your otherwise bulky clothing and linens.

There are full kits that you can buy, but you can handle the sealing process with extra-large storage bags and a vacuum featuring a detachable hose.

To properly seal a bag, simply push down on top to let all the air out. Once it's as deflated as much as possible, use the vacuum to remove those last bits of air.

Often, successful sealing depends on the quality of the bags, and less durable ones are prone to breaking or leakage.

Vacuum sealing is just one way to optimize your move. Another easy way is to a professional service. With over 68 years of experience, Atlas Van Lines ensures the most enjoyable moving experience possible.
